Nov. 19 – On this day in Montana history in 1883 the Livingston Daily Enterprise ran together a variety of news tidbits that give insights into how communities grew. A 1,200 foot “shed” was being built at the west end of the Mullan tunnel. The United States Geological surveying party that had been working out of Livingston “has disbanded and gone east.”  Basinski Bros. had put up 2,000 head of sheep on their range at Tongue River. And a “runaway team attached to a load of wood made a lively scene on Main street this morning, but fortunately did no damage except to the outfit.”
